As I sit here on a Friday night, with a belly full of Chinese food, I can’t quite believe I’m looking at a photo of my desk. But I thought I’d show you my girlie essentials that sit on my desk on a regular basis.
This month Glamour magazine is my read of choice on my lunch break, it’s not usually my go to magazine, but with Cheryl Cole gracing the front, I opted for it instead of my usual Elle. I also have a silly amount of train tickets, as I have a slight obsession with keeping tickets (you should see the shopping center pile in my car!). I also have my Soft Touch Notebook which I picked up from Sainsburys for a whopping £2 in the back to school offer. It’s a wider dupe for the moleskin diaries which are slightly too thin in width and I find it hard to keep my writing looking neat. The pages shown are actually my blogging planner pages, where I stick post it notes and cross them off once I’ve posted.
Cosmetic wise, I am never without my Nivea Milk and Honey lip balm. It smells lovely and is really creamy – great for the cold wintery days ahead. If i’m feeling fancy I’ve also been popping the Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107 over the top. It’s a beautiful dark raspberry red. On more pink toned lips, it looks more red, and on paler lips it looks very dark – just a heads up if you’re looking to buy it.
I also keep the Avene Cold Hand Cream on my desk at all times as my hands (well actually just my right hand) has a tendency to get very dry. You only need the tiniest amount so it lasts a very long time and if you over apply, boy will you know about it! It has a very strong granny smell… but I kind of like it as long as I don’t over apply. I also keep the Soap and Glory Hand Maid sanitizer on my desk, just in case we have a few winter germs going around.
And there you have it, it’s not as exciting as a what’s in my make up drawer post, but I keep more than just an over sized collection of highlighters (stationary nerd alert!) so I thought it was worth showing you!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend x
